Daft Punk, Grammy-Award Winning French Group Split After 28 Years
Daft Punk, a popular French music group has split after working together for 28 years. The group, which consists of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, broke the news in a less than eight-minute video on their YouTube channel on Monday 22nd February 2020.
In the footage titled “Epilogue”, the singers wore their trademark robot costumes walking together in the desert. They, however, paused abruptly and thereafter bid each other farewell before one of them self-destructed. A terse post reading “1993-2021” was showed thereafter, explaining the group’s formative year and eventual split.

The pair met in 1987 while attending the Lycée Carnot secondary school in Paris and became friends.
They started their music partnership with Darlin, a guitar-based group, formed in 1992. However, the group was disbanded not long after leading to the emergence of Daft Punk.
The duo rose to the limelight in 1993 after the release of “Homework”, their debut album, which contained hit tracks including “Da Funk’” and “Around The World.”.
Daft Punk continued to pull the strings thereafter with several beautiful music offerings which topped charts, snagged positive reviews as well as awards.
The pair also had collaborative projects with other music heavyweights including The Weeknd and Kanye West. They released “Get Lucky”, in 2013 their global hit single, featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers.
“Random Access Memories”, their final official release together, earned the pair a Grammy for best album of 2013. Since 2014, their presence in the global music landscape has, however, dwindled raising concerns among fans.
